Because without those H1B workers fuelling the local economies, Amaricans can't find work.
Ive heard of this before...
Did it all the time; going from memory...
I go for the dead simple, zip up all the files from the source
Run a phone wire between the computerers, with the terminal call one from one (IIRC you have to disable dialtone check use ATX3 then ATD555)
and on the other manual answer (ATA)
you migh have to do half duplex (local echo) on the terminals IIR this was the quickest route for no fuss local communication
once connected use the upload/download options on the terminals to start the file trnasfer
then look on it in a few hours, it will just churn away till it's finished.
It may be slow but it will complete as expected, and there is no special hardware, program or data cost.
look at the bottom of this article on my machine to machine notes -
"Suppose you wanted to send me a file with very sensitive information, how would you encrypt it in such a way that I would decrypt it?"
Sounds like something you should be dictating to them not asking them for thier opinion. Unless the developer has actually needed to use use things like PGP etc, he probably has never thought of it.
I think a better question is, We will be transmitting confidential/sensitive information, which means you will use PGP(whatever) are you ok with that? etc.
Please, come back!
But it makes me wonder: Whom do you trust with your data? And who really owns it? What about in 3-6 years from now? How should I make sure that I retain access to today's data 20 years from now? Is storing things locally even a reasonable option for most people? I have a lot of floppies and old IDE disks from the 90s around here, but no means to access them, and some of the CDs and DVDs has gone bad as well.
Knowing Ubuntu it can take months... at least not till the next release. If you want the latest on some apps you just have to forgoe the standard distibution repository and either add in the program specicic PPA or install it manually. Its not really THAT hard, once you have done it a couple times its not much extra bother.
The name "Microsoft" on the app.
Teachnically the "have access to" 25mb down. It may not be affordable, but it's there.
For those that want to look at the pretty pictures:
I think the ability to theme with firefox color themes is intrigueing.
I think part of that is the rural areas have virtually nothing, so as they are just getting broadband they are getting a newer infrastructure as a starting point.
Then agin in rural areas where only cable and sattelite or just only satellite is feasable those guys get gouged pretty good.
Medical researchers like Dr. Michael Patton believe this sort of prototyping will become "the new normal" in a very short time. "What you can now do through 3D printing is like what you’re able to do in the software world: Rapid iteration, fail fast, get something to market quickly. You can print the prototypes, and then you can print out model organs on which to test the products. You can potentially obviate the need for some animal studies, and you can do this proof of concept before extensive patient trials are conducted.
